Can anyone tell me if McDonalds french fries are gluten-free in Canada? Their fact sheet appears to show no gluten. If they are gluten-free, has anyone ever had a problem after consuming them?

Thanx, Tracy

Hi there. I live in the US, but my Mom (who is also Celiac, isn't the gene pool fun?) lives in Canada and has no problems with McD. fries. As far as worrying about the server having gluten on his hands, as far as I've seen McD. fries are always put in the little boxes with a special scoop, and are never touched by the employees. I personally am glad to know that thier fries are gluten-free, because that is something that doesn't need to be messed with, I mean potatoes aren't really that expensive...

Yes! Ive had a severe reaction to Mc Donald's fry's. I live in Barrie ONTARIO CAN. and the other day thinking that their fry's were okay had the super size. 10 mins, which is the normal time I react to gluten was all it took after eating the fry's. I had a really bad migrane and was sick to the point where i was throughing up every hour. It took me 2 weeks to recover from that incident. Now ive heard good things and bad things on Mc Donalds and i guss it all depends on how everyone react's. Everyone is diffrent. I still do not know why I was so sick and I know it was the fry's on the account that's all i had to eat all day. I hear that they coat their fry's in TBHQ. Somthing we Celiac's cant have. I got that information from the U.S. web site. In Canada im not sure if it would be the same here. If anyone know's more about that let me know cuz i would love to hear about it!

My mom works in McD's in the US and the grease used for the frys is the same grease that they use for the chicken nuggets. And there's breading on the nuggets, right? So im i would say that the fries are bad! If im wrong im sry.

I live in kansas....and here they bake their nuggets in these little toaster oven things. Their fries are in dedicated fryers. The hashbrowns are the only other thing that go into them.

But some hash browns have wheat starch in the coatings, so be careful!

The fries and the hashbrowns in the US are gluten free. I don't know about Canada, but I can't see why they would be different. Only some restaurants use dedicated fryers though, so it is a good idea to ask. Especially if it is a McDonald's

Express station like they have at malls and gas stations. They don't have the room for dedicated fryers, so those places are not usually safe to have the fries/hashbrowns.

God bless,

Mariann

    • That would be awesome! We could go out for coffee or round each others houses and play some games or just chat like Ennis said. By the way I suck at most games except a few so you or Ennis are almost guaranteed a win! But I have fun anyways, haha.
    • Yeah, it's when too many things happen at once and you suddenly have to take all this time and thought to deal with them, plus the stress on top of it. That's a LOT you had in a very short time. I hope things settle down for you soon but I know it takes time to figure everything out. Omg, a vacation in Hawaii or something, lol, then I'll be okay! But I think what I'm figuring out is that you have to MAKE your own mini vacations every single day or you go insane. So the suggestions people made above are really good I think to redirect your attention to goals and actively DO something towards them. Even playing games and things like that can be a goal. There's goals inside the game and also the goal of giving your mind a break and treating yourself well. I don't do this at all lately and I'm feeling it. Just spinning round inside my head and I need to STOP that now. lol. Even though you have so much going on I hope you can find time in the day too to be good to yourself.
    • I react to any product derived from cows milk but i can eat small amounts of  goats milk cheese,yogurt and kefir. However i cant drink goats milk.I think you should try goats milk kefir, it has a good amount of fat,bilions of probtics  And butter! Contains small amount of lactose (especially when you make ghee from it)  i buy goat butter  from a certified gluten free brand ( I live in Turkey , though, I dont which brands are gluten-free in your country)
    • Had my biopsy yesterday. No formal results yet but dr said there was a lot of inflammation and thickening of the wall. So he is sending me for a CT scan with IV contrast. He said he wanted to make sure there wasn’t anything “pushing” on the intestines. This has panicked me. Anyone have similar issues? He also said I had Duodenitis which I have read can be caused from Celiac. Thoughts?
    • If it is a lactose issue it will probably still bother you, early on over 10 years ago with my lactose intolerance I tried the goats cheese, it was not as painful but it still caused issues.
      You mention nuts, tried nut butters? I tolerate nut butters and cheese made with nuts very well. Homemade cashew cheese is wonderful but being not a true nit it can be iffy with people. I also make a coconut cheese that is much cheaper, but grainy but works in a pinach. I love a few different cheeses from the store. I have a list of cheese products that are non dairy on the gluten-free food list I composed.

      Avocado is also another fat, some people have issues with it but I find it very easy to digest. I love it in all forms and just finished off a big bowl of homemade guacamole, and a batch of avocado icecream I made up. >.< I have a recipe for even making frosting with it. Pairs well with eggs and the grain free toast I use.

      Many celiac have dairy intolerance at least starting off due  to damaged villi and not being able to produce enough of the enzymes to break it down, some like me it is life. I talked and convinced myself that dairy is evil with various reading, I meal really why would we suck on another animals teat for its milk for ITS babies ....just does not make sense logically.
